Top features I would like:
=> Improved undo functionality. Undoing should be automatically approved in cases where no new information is revealed. This already kinda exists e.g. when selecting cards to trash, but it could be expanded significantly. Playing treasures (other than idol) is one example area where this could be done.
=> Less buggy undo functionality. Sometimes it erases game history, and sometimes it also just does nothing (I can press "undo" but it doesn't give my opponent the option to approve the undo. Particularly bad around possession.)
=> Improved banning functionality. There's one particular troll that I've encountered repeatedly under different names (I know he is the same one because his brand of rudeness is quite distinct, and his usernames are always characters from a particular book series.) Typically he lasts days or weeks on a name, which indicates to me that he isn't getting banned fast enough, and also that he's able to keep creating accounts (so no IP ban?)
=> An easier way to view game history. Dominion Salvager can show history but only on the games since the last Glicko-2 recomputation.
=> The ability to step through replay games and then start playing from a given point. There are sometimes where I like to replay a game from a certain point to see what would have happened if I made a different decision - but right now I need to do a very slow binary search to figure out what the decision number was to reach that point.
=> But overall, the new dominion is a **huge** improvement over MF. It's really great and I'm glad you've done it!
1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
Wouldn't use; bots aren't good enough players to be competitive or interesting to me.
2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
Wouldn't use, same reason as above.
3. A strong bot.
If you can make a bot that's similar to a >level 50 player, I'd be very impressed. Unless that happens though (and I think that'd be really hard to do), this bot will not be interesting to me.
4. Options for timed games
5. Options for undo settings
6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
Sounds cool - I doubt I'd actually do this with my friends, but if there were tournaments like the one we had a few months ago more frequently, I'd definitely participate. I imagine that if you make mini-tournaments easy to make, we'll have more like that.
7. Option to invite specific players to your table
I probably wouldn't use this feature (community isn't really strong enough for me to have friends that I'd care to do this with), though I like the idea.
8. More translations (to what language?)
Native English speaker, so not useful to me. Since this is posted in English, and anyone here clearly understands enough English to play, you're probably getting skewed results from this question, though.
9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
Animations do nothing for me.
10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
This would be nice.
10. Option to hide the log
Nah. You need the log at least for the current turn, since it's not really possible to always follow the game in real time. Once you have that, it wouldn't be hard for someone to record the log on their own (I bet someone will even make an extension that does this.)
11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)
I think the screen size is the kicker here - I wouldn't play this on my phone, though it could be do-able on a tablet.
12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)
No iphone, so don't care.
13. Downloadable game logs
Yes please. Would love to analyze my games.
14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion
Don't care, I know how to play Dominion. New players would probably appreciate this, though.
16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
Same as above.
